PACK YOUR BAGS FOR AUSTIN: Meet the finalists for the 2014 LAUNCHedu competition at SXSWedu. This year just ten lucky companies made the cut, in contrast to last year's 24 finalists. The companies span the globe far and wide, with finalists from Cairo, London, and Berlin making the list. Each will have the chance to pitch in front of a live SXSWedu audience in March to be judged by a panel of experts. Winners are publicized widely, joining the ranks of winning companies including Clever (2013) and BloomBoard (2012). For more info, check out the competition page.
